RIP John Prine

One of the best songwriters to ever walk this earth passed away from Covid19 yesterday. Even if you aren’t familiar with him or his songs, it’s very likely that he influenced someone that you listen to. John was an absolute poet, with some of the wittiest lines ever put to paper. My favorite is from below. 

“Well, I sat there at the table and I acted real naive, for I knew that topless lady had something up her sleeve.”

Saw this last night,  and it sucks. John had been fighting cancer for years, and was finally over that, and had been playing some shows around Nashville the past few years, but then this damn coronavirus came along and got him. Ugh, sucks. He's such a unique songwriter, I've enjoyed his music for years. If you haven't listened to his latest album from 2018, 'Tree of Forgiveness,' I highly recommend it.

NPR wrote up a detailed overview of his life in their obituary:
